Demolishing the Myths


There are three large National Federations of Demolition Contractors members in Falkirk – Central Demolition, David Morton Demolition, and Masterton Ltd, an unusually dense concentration in such a small area.

Pirtek’s success at capturing all of their business is no real secret according to John McArthur, Contracts Manager for David Morton Demolition. “Demolition is now highly automated, In order to keep men out of harms way, virtually all the work is done by excavators, which are the lynchpins of any modern demolition project. The downside is that any unscheduled equipment failure will simply bring the project to a halt, and this , according to Morton, is why he and other demolition experts now rely upon the service offered by Pirtek”. “Prompt back up and repairs by Pirtek are now an integral part of our operations.  We always look after our equipment, but parts fail and hoses still get damaged, and they need to be put right ASAP. Pirtek’s reaction times are excellent and they do a sterling job on site”, John concludes. “They are very reliable and come equipped for any type of repair on site, which is why they retain our work”.
